This 1934 Ford Coupe Punches With a 502 Cubic Inch V-8

502 cubic inches is pretty big!

Chances are, you’ve at some point been confronted by a hot rod on the racing track or local car show. Do you remember how it made you feel? Perhaps you fell in love with the rumbling sound of a V8 engine or maybe just the violent power it seemed to drive with. Either way it’s likely you’ve thought about how much fun it would be to own one someday. Well, today is that day.

The make of your new stallion is a 1934 Ford Coupe whose style became synonymous with the idea of an old school drag car. Under the hood, you might expect a small block or supercharged V8 engine. However, only the wildest enthusiasts might be capable of controlling the 502 cubic inch V8 engine under the hood. Such a massive big-block is something reserved primarily for hardcore racing.

Despite making a ton of power and torque, it’s pretty easily controlled in terms of getting it all to the rear wheels. That’s because of the Turbo 400 automatic transmission whose name is quite well known within the classic automotive industry for its popularity in drag racing. To top it all off, there is a set of 3.73 gears in the back making acceleration possible. Overall, it’s a great hot rod for anyone who loves the sound of a V8, that could be you.
